The Real Flavour of Tuscany01/04/2013
By Lori de Mori & Jason Lowe
The mere mention of Tuscany evokes visions of abundance. This book tells the remarkable story of Tuscan cookery through visual and written portraits of some of Tuscany’s most extraordinary gastronomic and food-related artisans.
Author Lori de Mori has lived in Tuscany for many years and is convinced that the genius of the place can best be understood by looking closely at the lives of some of the exceptional people who live and work there – they seem to share a kind of personal integrity, a sincere belief in the excellence of their work and a certain humility – the ability to light the wood stove, milk the ewes, coax the bees out of their hives – quietly, without pretence – day after day, year after year.
